Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back

by jen on May 30, 2014

Just so you know, the title of this post is an homage to the “Welcome Back Kotter” theme, which is, and I will fight you on this, the best TV theme song ever next to the ones from “The Greatest American Hero” and ”WKRP in Cincinnati,” of course.

This is the new and improved Can’t Fight City Hall. I originally began this blog in grad school. I meant it to be an extension of my thesis  — women in leadership and how the media portrays them. Somehow, though, this blog flew wildly off course and turned into something of a “Miserable and the Syracuse.” I do not want to be Saddy Sadshaw, and I’m not in Syracuse anymore.

I also wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue the women/leadership/media thing, but I’m happy to see Sheryl Sandberg carrying that torch for me. My 100-page case study of Nancy Pelosi said all those things people who care about women and media are still saying. I passed the defense. Now I want to write something even closer to my heart. I know what you’re thinking: What could be closer than Nancy Pelosi owning your soul for a year? Well, writing and editing is closer to my heart than that.

In the past few months I’ve had a pretty big epiphany about myself. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and that’s what I set out to do from the time I was a wee thing. It’s time to get back to basics, time to be myself, and write. This blog is dedicated to writing — the good, the bad, and the lonely existence of caring about how words are spelled when the rest of the world is clearly against you.
